Examining the benefits of demand reduction policies for electricity
ESRI Research Bulletin Articles provide short summaries of work published by ESRI researchers and overviews of thematic areas covered by ESRI programmes of research. Bulletin Articles are designed to be easily accessible to a wide readership. A reference or references to the full publication is included at the start of each Bulletin article.
Firstly, we examine the benefits of different demand reduction policies in terms of costs to electricity consumers. Secondly, we seek to establish the benefits of allowing consumers, who have the capability to self-generate, provide electricity to consumers other than themselves. Finally, we consider the effects of market power on electricity prices.
